The stablemate Wyangle is the second emergency drawing barrier (1), second up from a spell to be joined by Nick Souquet for this event.

Wyangle is a four-year-old gelding who was last seen finishing fifth of 12/1000 m at Albury when competing in a class 2 handicap.

He displays perfect second up form with one win coming from 1 attempt and looks a competitive chance after drawing perfectly providing he can gain a start.

Good luck to all connected at this venue.
